Why Focus and Visualization are Important to change our lives?
The Law of Attraction suggests that if we focus on positive things, then positive things will be attracted into our lives. This is why followers of LoA stress that we set aside time during the day to focus on the things that we want and visualize them coming into our lives.
As a new practitioner of the LoA, you should begin setting aside time during the day to do this. You should start by spending several hours to define your goals clearly. When you do this, don’t only think about getting a certain amount of money, but think mainly about how you will use it.
After you have defined your goals, you should spend at least a half-hour each day doing nothing other than focusing on them and visualizing them happening. It may seem excessive at first, but in fact, it is a method that many professional athletes and successful businesspersons do regularly.
Once you have done this a few times, you will understand why it makes sense. It helps you to focus your attention where it should be: namely, on achieving your goals. It also helps you to walk through your targets carefully, step-by-step through visualization. This will help you to form a precise plan about how you can overcome problems and achieve goals, no matter how difficult they may seem.
How to Create an Environment for Focus and Visualization
We’ve now established that focus and visualization is an essential part of applying the LoA. Focusing on your goals, visualizing and accepting them happening, you will use the LoA successfully and reap the personal and material benefits that follow.
With this said, it is crucial to think about how you can improve your focus and bolster your visualization techniques. You can start by employing the following methods, which are known to improve mindset, calm nerves, and allow you to concentrate:
Burn incense or light an aromatherapy candle. Pick a scent that will energize you and focus you, rather than dulling your senses or putting you to sleep. Scents such as peppermint, grapefruit, or vanilla will accomplish this goal. Once the smell has filled the room, close your eyes, and focus on your goals. Attempt to visualize how they will happen, and feel open and accepting as they do.
Get a massage. A massage can loosen up your muscles and make you feel relaxed and calm. This will make it easy for you to focus your mind on only one thing—namely, the process by which you will achieve your goal.
Take a warm bath with dim lighting. This will put you in a quiet environment away from other people, where you can relax and focus. Concentrate your mind on only one goal and how you will achieve it.
Practice meditation. One of the best-known techniques for focusing on one thought is meditation. Learning how to meditate better will translate into better use of the LoA.
In short, focus and visualization are essential parts of practicing the LoA. So, if you want to practice LoA correctly, then you need to find ways to focus and visualize better.
How to Avoid Bad Thoughts
As I said earlier, cynicism can be destructive to our use of the LoA. It can prevent us from trying harder by convincing us that things are not possible. And it can prevent us from focusing on an idea and following through.
For these reasons, we need to keep bad, cynical thoughts away when we are genuinely attempting to practice the Law of Attraction. Instead, we must focus on ideas that are positive and that reinforce our vision of the future.
How can we do this? There are some different ways. I suggest just a few below:
Find Ways to Snap Out of Bad Thoughts
If you find yourself reinforcing bad thoughts with more bad thoughts, you have to find some way to break free from the cycle. Psychologists often suggest using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques in situations like this.
One commonly suggested CBT technique involves wearing an elastic band around your wrist. When you start to encounter negative thoughts, snap that elastic band. That immediate, physical feedback can help you to jolt out of a cycle of negative thoughts; and then begin to fix your attention on something else instead.
Other techniques involve discontinuing what you are doing at the time and doing something else instead. For instance, if you are in your cubicle at work, and you are looking at a massive stack of papers, you might begin to feel depressed and overwhelmed. Instead of sitting there and staring at the papers, get up and take a quick break. Grab a coffee or talk to someone in a nearby cubicle. This can help to break the cycle of negativity before it begins.
Avoid Places that Generate Bad Thoughts
In your day-to-day experiences, you have probably recognized that certain places cause bad thoughts. Perhaps there was an event in the past where you failed at something unexpectedly. Or maybe something terrible happened to you and your family; and whenever you pass by a specific place, you think of that bad though.
From now on, it’s time to start pushing those places out of your life. If a situation makes you sad and it is very little you can do to overcome that sorrow, then don’t visit it anymore. Take a different route to work. In short, avoid any place that can put you on the path to becoming increasingly negative.
